The Army-Navy Screen Magazine was produced by the U.S. Army Signal Corps Pictorial Service, under the supervision of Col. Frank Capra, who came up with the idea. It was released twice a month and shown to military troops as a 20-minute newsreel.

"By the end of the war, the Army-Navy Screen Magazine reached an enormous weekly audience of 4.2 million. It had become for American soldiers all over the world a communal experience that greatly influenced their perception of the war."

It featured short documentary films, news from back home, and short training films like Dr. Seuss' Private Snafu cartoons. I've uploaded the entire Screen Magazine and also each segment as a separate file (some editions are comprised of 1 long film, though).

Description at the National Archives: "Reel 1, Leopold Stokowski conducts a Shostakovich concert at a desert air base in the U.S. Edw. G. Robinson speaks. Shows staged scenes of besieged Leningrad. Sailors attend sonar school; depth bombs are dropped from a destroyer in the N. Atlantic. Japanese films show Japanese infantry crossing a pontoon bridge in China, wading a river, pulling horse-drawn artillery through mire, and occupying a village. Reel 2, volunteers at Fort Knox, Ky., test uniforms and equipment for arctic and equatorial use. Their ability to adapt to hot and cold temperatures is checked. Shows the aircraft carrier Hornet under aerial attack off Santa Cruz. Wounded are removed by breeches buoys to a destroyer."

As always, any error or typo is mine and if you enjoy my uploads or if you intend to make $ or otherwise profit from these files, please consider making a donation to a veteran's charity of your choice and/or itself. Thanks. :)
